New Race Date Announced
The Founders Barry-Roubaix is excited to announce a change in the events date. The Killer Gravel Road Race will now take place the third Saturday in April (April 16th for 2016). This decision was made to improve rider safety with the hopes of removing the chances for icy road conditions. We also thought you’d appreciate the extra month of early season training and overall warmer weather.
We are also pumped to announce two new events; The Salsa Fargo Sub 48 and the Founders Fall Fondo – Barry-Roubaix Edition.
The first annual Salsa Fargo SUB-48 will take place September 25 – 27, 2015. The event will be limited to 200 riders with Pre-registration through Bikereg only. This event is meant to be an introduction to Adventure by Bike and not limited to only those with tons of experience. All bikes are allowed but Salsa Fargos are preferred of course!
This is not a race but rather a Fondo style cycling exploration with two days of riding the gravel back roads of Kent County, MI and two nights of rustic camping. Participants will Adventure by Bike, carry their camping gear, water, energy food, tools, and tubes. We will provide light breakfast Saturday and Sunday morning along with snacks, dinner and Founders beer, Saturday night so carrying food and cooking supplies is not necessary.
